The cauliflower mosaic virus promoter in GM crops: Should we worry?

*** This is another blog they buried behind the 1:30 blog to avoid you seeing it at 1 am when I scheduled it for that time, so I am telling you about it and moving it forward to emphasize there must be something in this they do not want you to read, either in the vatic note or the article.  I never know which, when they do this.  The ISP  on this was from Israel. 

***Fund raising - Until I can get that first pay check, I knew I might have to do fund raising one more time.  Soooo, here I am again asking you to donate to help meet the deficit of $85 by the first of the month.  Thank you all who have contributed so far.  We are forever grateful for your support.

I am confident that next month will be different.   I honestly think I will do well at it.  So help me get there so I don't have to do this asking/begging again.  If you appreciate the work we do and it has been of benefit to you, then we ask that you help us out by donating at the Pay pal button off to the right of this blog. If we cannot make it by the end of this month, then we will leave the blog up as a reference source for your use.  Thank you for all your support and God Bless you and yours for this coming new Year.  

Vatic Note:  So the question is,  "Is this just another fear porn piece, or is it real and should we act on this and do something about it?"  What is interesting is this manipulation through this virus, of our DNA through the DNA of the plant and all animals that eat the plants, can result in further manipulations of our DNA that will and can take away our humanity and if you have not been paying attention all these years with all these blogs that tell us just how special humanity is,  then you will not appreciate the ramifications of this below.

One of the goals of these khazar illuminati brain diseased creatures, is to bioengineer us who are remaining from the soft kill off of humanity, into mindless bioengineered robots who question nothing and know nothing and will do slavery bidding without any thought.

I believe they call these creatures "ZOMBIES" and as you know, the movie industry is owned and run by the khazar globalists and they use the movies to comply with their mandate to always tell us in advance what they plan on doing to us.   The massive number of Zombie movies, pretty much told us and now we must respond. 

If you doubt what I am saying, just go rent the movie "The Knowing".  It was released 9 months before the gulf blowout occurred and yet they have a full scene in that movie with the news announcer indicating that the blow out has happened in the gulf, and ironically, just a few weeks before the blowout occurred,  Rothschild owned, Goldman Sachs sold most, if not all of their shares of BP oil.  We did a blog on it when it happened.   So read this and let us know what you think. 

The cauliflower mosaic virus promoter in GM crops: Should we worry?
by Admin,  GM Watch,  January 1, 2015
The promoter turns up in the blood and brain of rats that eat GMOs – but while there’s no proof it does harm, there’s no proof it’s safe either

Recently GMWatch reported on a new study that showed that ingested fragments from the CaMV (cauliflower mosaic virus) promoter used in many GM crops incorporated into blood, liver, and brain tissues of experimental rats. Below are the aggregated comments of some scientists on the implications of this finding.

Scientists: The concern is not to do with the CaMV (cauliflower mosaic virus) promoter itself and what we know about its behaviour in its natural context. The concern is that this is a DNA sequence in a novel context, and we don’t know how it will behave in that new context. Even if the commercial versions of the CaMV promoter engineered into GM crops had an identical sequence to that of the natural virus, what it does in its new context (the GM plant) is not predictable.

What is known about the CaMV promoter is that it contributes to transcription initiation (the first step of gene expression) in the GM plant. But this occurs in the context of many other changes, possibly including those triggered by other DNA sequences which are inserted into the GM plant and which also contribute to transcription initiation in as yet unknown ways.

Surprisingly, these fragments of DNA are taken from parts of different genes and in their natural context they are not associated with transcription initiation! This, as much as any other evidence, shows that what a sequence is said to do in one context is not predictive of what it can do in another. So a potential unintended effect of the CaMV promoter in GM crops could be insertion and subsequent transcription of something that otherwise would not be transcribed. Alternatively it may have an affect that is not predictable from what we know about the natural functioning of similar-sequence DNA of virus origin.

Of course, all the above could be true of any dietary DNA. Nevertheless, that does not mean that these particular DNA sequences should not be tested for harm.

The key difference with the CaMV and other promoters is that they do not have a history of safe use in the way that they are being used in GM crops. In nature, the cauliflower mosaic virus infects brassica crops, such as cabbages. But even if there were no difference between the CaMV promoters in GM crops and the natural virus sequence, there is no proof that these natural virus sequences are in every cell of 100% of the brassicas we eat. They are almost certainly not present in any maize and soy that we eat. But the use of the CaMV promoter in all these species of GM crops means that it could be present in up to 100% of that material.

How these GM foods are prepared and where they are released in the body of the consumer at different stages of digestion may also affect the range of tissues exposed to the CaMV promoter.

The issue of dietary DNA may be more to do with principle than actual harm. For decades, some scientists and industries have denied, on the basis of no valid research, that dietary DNA could survive cooking and digestion. The fact that they have been proven wrong by this study and others before it raises questions about their credibility. But this fact alone is unlikely to trigger regulatory change unless it is coupled to a demonstration of harm.

The questions that should now be addressed are:
• What are the novel potential expression products that result from the CaMV promoter and other DNA sequences inserted into GMOs? These may be novel RNA or proteins.
• What do these expression products do, apart from what the genetic engineers intend them to do?

Answering these questions with actual data would enable this particular thread of the GMO safety debate to move beyond non-evidence-based claims of safety on one hand and speculation about possible harm from this promoter on the other.
